Formentera outlines changes in tourism by-laws

foto-jornada-informativa-turis1The Formentera Council's land and tourism councillor Alejandra Ferrer appeared in the Sala de Cultura today at 11.00am to lead an info session on the system for regulating the rental of vacation accommodation. Ferrer was joined by David Francés from the administration's legal department in outlining recent changes in Formentera's tourism by-laws for a crowd of roughly 250.

Ferrer spoke about modifications in the island's land directive that affect zoning and a cap on occupancy for holiday rentals. She also went over other changes—to the so-called “Plan for Quality in Vacation Rentals”, the by-law regulating the per-bed cost of permits to rent accommodation, the tax by-law underpinning a levy for administrative services in tourism, and Regulation 1/2015 on vacation rentals.

The representatives also reviewed deadlines for the different regulations so those interested can begin preparing the documentation that will be required. At the end of the event Ferrer opened the floor to questions. Questions? Contact:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Family discussion about healthy eating

xerrada-nutricio---1-The Formentera Council's social welfare office reports that tomorrow, Thursday February 21, 6.00pm in the Centre de Dia, dietician and nutritionist Lydia Micó will lead a talk on planning a healthy diet.

“Vida”, a puppet show for kids 10 and up (and families)

vida-foto-premsa1The Formentera Council's culture bureau reports that Saturday February 23 from 6.00pm children ages ten and over at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) can see Javier Aranda's production of Vida, a puppet show that combines heart-felt scenes with sophisticated wit.

Culture councillor Susana Labrador encouraged local parents to come see the spectacle with their children. “Our eyes were on this production from the start because it's for families”, she said. “Young and old—audiences are sure to love it”.

According to a representative of Javier Aranda, Vida is about “life—from birth to death, of the forward march of life and the years. How the ties that bind parents and children change over time. The show also focuses on two people—how they fall in love and have a son, and how he leaves home and leaves the pair to grow old together”.

To here those in the company tell it, there's something very special in the knowing gaze shared between creator and creation—the ever-present relationship between puppeteer and puppet.

Award-winning production
The show has earned accolades from Huesca's international theatre festival (Best show), Feten (Best small-format show), Lleida's puppet festival (Best show) and others.
